1. Good OSS roots 2. Created a vast community of users 3. Added value to commercialize
1. Too big a marketing team - changing over to commercial was a cultural shift

Amazingly smart people. Company with a purpose. Inventing the future of containerized infrastructure. Highly virtuous culture and purpose.
High growth company and still lots of ongoing changes. Nothing a-typical for a company at this size in such a hot space, but not for the faint of heart.1

I am pretty inspired to work at CoreOS because I work among some of the smartest people that are continually pushing the envelope. And I get to see how our technology (both open source and enterprise products) are changing the way companies operate internally to get applications to market. What inspires me: -Team dynamics, the team always comes together on a common goal to deliver amazing work -People are continually pushing themselves to do their best work -Team events across all offices (SF, Berlin and NYC) to celebrate work well-done -Great culture of people focused on making CoreOS a wonderful place to work for all people
We're a fast growing company so we have growing pains like all fast growing companies. But nothing that sticks out to me as unusual.1

- awesome CEO, CTO - awesome management - still small - very friendly employees - good culture - Golang - little bureaucracy - amazing work/life balance
- compensation was not very competitive (at least for interns and for what I heard from new hires), granted the company was still quite young when I worked there4

Great technology, great people, room to grow and learn.
Like any rapidly growing startup, was sometimes confusing to figure out what you should even be working on at a given time.

Most of the reviews here are from people close to the founders, but there are a few true statements: Smart & Good people in most departments High energy Great space (containers!)
Current management is incredibly weak on business, culture and people management / interaction. Behavior at times is almost like an episode of a sitcom - people acting the way they think they should based on a character rather than acting with intelligence or maturity. Based on these shortcomings they have made some moves on the executive front, bringing in more sales leaders and replacing others, none of which seem to have any idea what they are doing in this space. I've also heard horror stories of individuals getting lectured or written up based on stuff taking place during after hours events etc. Leadership feels very petty and arbitrary.1

Office in downtown San Francisco.
Poor Go to Market strategy that involves laying off entire sales teams 1 quarter after they were hired.4
